    MF 1835M loader support collapsed on tractor

    If warranty doesn’t cover it that would be the last MF I would ever buy. I suspect there were some serious mistakes made when it was built.

    New Owner Need Draw Bar

    According to Google the Yanmar 336 was built in Japan from 1980-1991 so apparently the original drawbar got lost or stolen somewhere along the way. Glad you were able to find a replacement John Deere drawbar that fits. My LS also has a 3 cylinder Yanmar engine, so far with only a little over...

    New Owner Need Draw Bar

    Did you buy the Yanmar 336 new or used ? Hard for me to imagine a brandnew tractor being delivered without the center drawbar.

    Can you live without a TV ?

    About 10 years ago my tv quit working so my plan was to go 1 year before buying a new tv, well about 10 months later I actually got lucky and won a new tv at a home show.

    What did you do on or to your LS Tractor today?

    What is making you think the bearings are shot ? to me it doesn’t look like it was ever used very much so I suspect the bearings will be fine. Pretty big job to replace the bearings. I would like to have a nice little disk myself but I wouldn’t really have a lot of use for it and prices are to...

    Gateway tech support; real or scam?

    Exactly what model did you buy ? I bought a Gateway GWTC51427 a couple weeks ago at Walmart, computer things sure keep changing a lot, simple things like turning it on or off are much different than they used to be, took quite awhile to get this new stuff figured out but so far it seems to be...

    PTO won't engage

    I believe if your not sitting in the seat the transmission has to be in neutral and the parking brake needs to be on in order for the PTO to work. At least that’s the way it works on my XR4155 .

    LS or TYM

    I am a very happy LS owner, currently a little over 300 trouble free hours. About a month ago I saw my first TYM tractor at a farm show and was pretty impressed, if I was buying a new tractor TYM would definitely be a possibility. I believe there hydraulic system is as good or better than...

    ~50~60Hp compact cabbed tractor with a good loader and lots of stability?

    TYM would be a very good choice, they probably have more lift capacity than any other 50-60 horsepower tractors, and superior hydraulic pump capacity .

    LS XR4145HC starting problem....

    I would Try disconnecting the battery and working all the switches that could possibly cause it not to start then reconnect the battery to see if anything changes.

    How to lube Husq sprocket tip

    My Husqvarna dealer told me over 40 years ago not to bother with greasing the roller because they usually last longer when not greased, greasing seems to force dirt into the bearings

    After years of hand filing, went and bought myself an Oregon chain grinder

    If you are unable to cut straight after hand filing your chain then the power grinder is definitely the tool for you ! Or maybe some manual chain filing lessons from a good teacher Would would help.

    After years of hand filing, went and bought myself an Oregon chain grinder

    I mostly sharpen by hand but occasionally take chain to dealer and pay $8 to have it sharpened. New chain is only $20 from local dealer so I have 3 Spare chains on hand. I also have a power sharpener but seldom use it because I’m willing to pay the $8 to have It sharpened by a pro...

    Harbor Freight Tools that don't suck

    I’ve owned a 12 ton bottle jack from Harbor Freight for about 5 years, it’s been trouble free but I don’t use it a lot. It’s very handy not having to crawl under stuff to pump the jack. Also used a 20 ton at a shop I used to work at and it was also trouble free.

    Tractors and wood! Show your pics

    Don’t let your imagination get to carried away, I also heat my home with mostly wood, it’s a much more comfortable heat for my old poorly insulated house but there sure ain’t nothing cheap about it. You might be making out ok with your other woodswork projects but I find it very hard to...

    Mike Thanks for telling us about your problems, just noticed today that one of the bolts for my left side bracket wasn’t quite as tight as it should be, I probably wouldn’t have noticed it if you hadn’t mentioned it, all 4 are tight now.

    Placement of doors in 40x60x14 workshop

    Built My first garage-shop with no windows, put windows in my second Garage-shop and now wish I wouldn’t have put in any windows. Windows need to be cleaned, loose wall space, seem to attract flies, often block vision because of sun in eyes. My opinion the windows were mostly just wasted money.

    Placement of doors in 40x60x14 workshop

    Lots of great ideas ! My garage-shop has end doors and side doors, the side doors are a pain when it snows or rains, thankfully it has a nice overhang so that helps a little. Every building and building site is different, I highly recommend listening to lots of opinions so hopefully you will be...

    Can I get some thoughts and opinions regarding Echo chainsaw?

    Best 3 trucks you've ever owned.

    Have owned 4 pickups, Chevrolet and Ford, they were all decent but my favorite was probably the 1988 Chevrolet S10 fwd with 2.5 liter engine it always got excellent mpg, if it wasn’t for rust I would probably still be driving it. Last fall I bought a new 2022 Ford F150 fwd with 2.7 liter eco...

    Front-End Loader I Want To Add a Loader (FEL) To My Existing Tractor.......

    Looks like a very nice little tractor that probably really wouldn’t need power steering until you install the FEL-front end loader. To me the $2750 price doesn’t sound cheap but it’s not crazy high. The price of adding a loader very likely will drive the price higher than I would be willing to pay.
